Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was the woman who Allah, about a Salam o alaikum, Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. This message is to all of our IOU students around the globe, wherever you may be.

00:00:26 --> 00:00:28

These are very, very difficult times.

00:00:30 --> 00:00:53

And no matter where you are, whether you are in a country that is high in the number of cases of the Coronavirus, or in a country where the cases are very small, either way, we are all being affected by this pandemic, in one way or the other.

00:00:54 --> 00:01:01

And so some of us we may have lost loved ones to this virus.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:37

Others among us we may have been infected with this virus. And we may be ill, we may be recovering. We don't know perhaps we will be breathing our last others among us. We have been affected financially, the economy, global economy has gone down. Some of us we may have lost our jobs. Our entire lives have been disrupted. And pretty much everyone their life has come to a standstill.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:45

These are the calamities of life that Allah subhanho wa Taala tests us with.

00:01:46 --> 00:02:02

And it is in these times that a Muslim needs to persevere patiently endure through difficult times, through times of adversity with

00:02:03 --> 00:02:30

something very, very special. And that is a suburb of patience. And so in the Quran. In fact throughout the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of the importance of patience, praising those who are patient. And so one example is to Bukhara Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us Yeah, hello Dina is a you know, be a Sabri, was salah, or you will believe

00:02:31 --> 00:02:53

be patient or seek assistance, through whatever it be that you're going through, through two things are sober patients and a Salah. Through through prayer. And then later on in. In the next few ayat, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of those who when a calamity strikes them,

00:02:56 --> 00:03:10

they turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala Alladhina either or saw the tomo sweda all who in early la we're in Isla urology room, those who when a calamity strikes them

00:03:13 --> 00:03:16

what do they say they say immediately they say in alila

00:03:18 --> 00:03:19

that we belong to Allah.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:34

We're in a urology room, and to Him Subhanahu wa Taala we are returning. So if you lose a loved one, it's not the end of the world. But rather you need to understand that

00:03:36 --> 00:03:41

this person who have lost he belonged to Allah in the first place.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:56

And to Allah he is going back and there's a beautiful story that I want to share with you concerning this idea that we are coming from Allah and to him were returning

00:03:57 --> 00:04:03

an a surah the Allah who I'm he reports he narrates the story, he says

00:04:05 --> 00:04:18

and this is reported in Sahih Muslim he says that the great companion Abu Talhah or the Allahu Allah, he used to have a son that was nicknamed a boon ye

00:04:20 --> 00:04:21

or Abu Omar, Abu are made

00:04:22 --> 00:04:27

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He used to joke with

00:04:28 --> 00:04:42

this young boy, he used to say because this young boy or girl or male, he used to have a bird that he used to play with. So the prompts are seldom used to say to him Oh, who made nothing I don't know where what has no hair done

00:04:43 --> 00:04:43


00:04:45 --> 00:04:47

And it's really long and he says one day

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

about me the young boy he fell ill

00:04:52 --> 00:04:58

and Abu Talhah his father was out in the fields working

00:05:01 --> 00:05:07

And he felt so ill that eventually he passed away. The young boy, Amir, he ends up passing away.

00:05:08 --> 00:05:13

So I will tell his wife on Solane radula. And her,

00:05:14 --> 00:05:20

she washed him. She wrapped him up. And she prepared him for burial.

00:05:22 --> 00:05:27

And then she said, No one, no one should tell us who told her

00:05:29 --> 00:05:30

about the death of his son before me.

00:05:32 --> 00:05:49

And so I will tell her, he came home that day, in the evening, very tired. And he happened to be fasting. And on saline, she prepared his dinner. And she beautified herself for him.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:55

And then she gave him his dinner he ate. And then

00:05:56 --> 00:06:04

after that, he asked, What is a Gu Emir up to? So she said, he has eaten and he's done.

00:06:06 --> 00:06:08

So then, after that

00:06:11 --> 00:06:13

they had intimate relations that night.

00:06:15 --> 00:06:15

And then

00:06:16 --> 00:06:19

on Celine, she asked Abu Talha,

00:06:20 --> 00:06:29

she said, Oh, Abu Talha. If some people borrow something from another family,

00:06:30 --> 00:06:34

and then they asked for what they have borrowed, they asked for it back.

00:06:36 --> 00:06:51

Would they resist? Would they resist in returning it? Or would they give it back? So I will tell her, he said, of course they would give it back. You borrow something from someone and he's asking for a back, you give it back.

00:06:52 --> 00:06:55

And so she said,

00:06:56 --> 00:06:57

Oh, I will tell her

00:06:59 --> 00:07:00

be patient

00:07:01 --> 00:07:07

and see the reward of Allah, for indeed, a boy who may has passed away.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

And so he became angry.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:55

That, you know, she didn't tell him earlier. So he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and he informed him of what had happened. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, may Allah bless the two of you, for that night that you spent with each other meaning that on that night, you were blessed with a child and also Elaine became pregnant and she ended up having another child. The point of the story that I wanted to bring our attention to, was how this Sahabi dealt with such a such a difficult situation.

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

She understood clearly,

00:07:59 --> 00:08:00


00:08:02 --> 00:08:07

whoever we lose, even if it's my own son, my own daughter,

00:08:08 --> 00:08:16

my mother, my father, they don't belong to me. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us these people that we love.

00:08:17 --> 00:08:46

And when the time comes, they are simply being returned back to Allah subhanho wa taala. And so this shows us her patients and the patients that every single one of us must exercise in these very difficult and trying times we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to relieve us of this calamity. Well, sal Allahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad. While early he was so happy he was so limited Sleeman Kathira
